A new church forming in Chester, VAPLAN YOUR VISIT
THROUGH NEW LIFE
To cultivate a hopeful community shaped by grace and truth to nourish new life in Christ.
A diverse church body exalting God in discipleship and unity.
OUR DELIGHTFUL GUIDE
The Scriptures are God's chosen means of reliably telling people about Himself and His redemptive purposes, culminating in Jesus. We study, proclaim, and apply His Spirit-inspired and authoritative Word because this is how God brings new life to our thinking, feeling, and acting.
OUR ABIDING CENTER
Every person is born spiritually dead in sin, but God graciously sent His Son as the atoning sacrifice so that anyone who repents and puts their faith in Jesus receives forgiveness, adoption, and eternal life. We proclaim the gospel as the message of salvation, the basis of our new identity, and the means of walking in new life.
OUR GRACIOUS CALLING
Our Savior calls us to walk in new life through denying ourselves, abiding in His love, and keeping His commandments. We nurture disciples of Christ through biblical teaching and intentional relationships to grow in love of God and love of neighbor, bearing fruit in the power of the Holy Spirit.
OUR DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER
Through the Spirit, diverse people are made into a new family by faith in Christ rather than by a shared human culture or characteristic. We base our fellowship on biblical truths, and in matters of Christian liberty we humbly serve others ahead of ourselves because unity is God’s gift to us and a testimony to the world.
